On TV or in movies, there can never be too many monsters in the universe. Godzilla vs. Kong grossed a lot of money at the movie office last year, and there’s a solid reason for it: people enjoy seeing monsters punching each other. Having fun with it is a great idea! Don’t be a killjoy.
Why is Apple TV+ launching a Godzilla spinoff series that is part of Legendary’s Monsterverse? Because they know what’s going on. The film will follow up on Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island, as well as other series films like Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Other than the fact that we’ll see Godzilla (licensed to Legendary by Godzilla owner Toho), as well as other Titans in the Monsterverse, and that this will be a live-action series, there aren’t too many clear information on what will happen next (there isn’t even a title yet).
The story follows one family’s adventure to unearth its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch, following the thunderous fight between Godzilla and the Titans that decimated San Francisco and the stunning new truth that monsters are real.
Other prospective projects were also mentioned, including Wool, an adaptation of Hugh Howey’s fantastic trilogy about humans living in silos after the apocalypse (I promise, it’s better than the description suggests). In the sci-fi sphere, there’s also the newly released Foundation and Invasion, as well as the second seasons of See and Ted Lasso, which continued their triumphs. Oh, and there will be a third season of The Morning Show, so Apple is quickly becoming a key player in the streaming world.
